Anne Ross single-handedly founded The ADD-vance ADHD and Autism Trust in 1996. Over 20 years ago there was no support available for families whose children showed symptoms of ADHD, a little-known disability at that time. Anne worked tirelessly to fill this gap and has continued to campaign for change in education and understanding amongst parents and professionals. Today ADD-vance draws on the coaching, training and administrative skills of over 20 dedicated employees and volunteers to deliver much needed support to parents and professionals involved in caring for children affected by ADHD, autism and related conditions. Anne has nurtured a sustainable and vital resource for local families, from using her own time and operating a helpline from her home in the 1990s, to the charitable organisation it is today, providing help and support to over 4,500 people in Hertfordshire each year.
